The GTX 1060 is Nvidia’s third 16 nm Pascal based GPU. It follows last month’s release of the higher end GTX 1070 and 1080. The 1060 has a TDP of 120 Watts and its aftermarket variants are available right away alongside the reference Founders edition. Comparing the GTX 1060 and 970 shows that although the 1060 leads by 12% it is also currently more expensive. Nvidia rushed the release of the GTX 1060 to help retain market share that may otherwise have gone to AMD’s new Polaris based RX 480. Comparing the RX 480 and GTX 1060 shows that for pre DX12 games the 1060 edges ahead by 12%. Due to better hardware compatibility, the RX 480 is able to match the 1060 in DX12 games but this will remain a corner case until most games are optimized for DX12 (likely to take several years). The 1060 has the potential to become a hugely successful card, but that all depends on where prices settle. [Jul '16 GPUPro]


The new GTX 980 Ti shares the same board as the more expensive Titan-X but with various restrictions including a reduced number of CUDA cores (3072 to 2816, -8.3%). Although the 980 Ti has the same 384-bit memory bandwidth as the Titan-X it only has 6GB of GDDR5 vs. 12GB in the Titan-X. So far we only have one user benchmark from a pre-release unit of the GTX 980 Ti so the following benchmarks are provisional. Comparing the Titan-X and 980 Ti shows that the Ti only lags by around 8%, which is in line with the CUDA core counts on the two cards. On the other hand comparing the GTX 980 and GTX 980 Ti shows that the Ti is around 16% faster. We don't have reliable prices for the GTX 980 Ti yet so a precise value rating isn't possible but as a card aimed at resolutions greater than 1080p it will struggle to match the GTX 970 for the vast majority of users. [May '15 GPUPro]
